EA Early Access? What is it?

So I have early access, and then I pre-ordered the standard edition of the game. Does that mean that I get the game today with everyone else?

Sidenote, what time is the webapp supposed to come out? Cause then I'll check 3 days later when it's still not up

    EA Access is a 10h trial of the game, and is independent of pre-ordering FIFA 19. Since you have the standard edition, you will get the full game on the 28th when it's the official launch.

    The webapp is set to be launched today, no official time announced so just be patient.

    You'll get 10 hours today. But once those run out you'll have to wait for the standard release date.

    Web app is today.

    Wait so do I get the 10 hours today or not at all? And is there a set time today for the web app?

    Huh, so I do get it even though I only bought the standard edition with EA access, but I get it on the 20th?

    You get 10 hours. When that 10 hours expires you'll have to wait for standard release.

    You get the 10 hours through access (even if you haven't pre ordered the game) then as you have standard you will have to wait from their expiry until the 28th for the full game.

    You get a 10h trial tomorrow because you have EA Access and has nothing to do with you pre-ordering FIFA 19, which I mentioned in my last comment. Even if you didn't pre-order FIFA 19, you'd still get the 10h trial.

    I didn't want to start a whole new thread here, so I will ask in this one since it is related to each access.

    I have already pre-ordered the standard edition. I have some free time this weekend. It is possible to get access for month, just for the 10 hours and then cancel it immediately so I don't pay for the entire year?

    By Saturday will there still be many people with some of those 10 hours left?

    Yes. Cancel it when you're done and it'll give you money back too.

    Yes. You can cancel it 30 seconds after you buy it. It just won’t renew in a months time.

    @MaestroPirlo21 you do have the option of only buying a subscription for a month. Think its £4 for one month and £20 for the year

    That's not true, i think you have to actually go ask for a refund to get the money back. :joy:

    I do it every every year. You get the money back after like 4 or 5 days of canceling. I always have thought it stupid that they allow it, but they do, so i do it.

    So purchase the month and instantly cancel? Will I still be able to download the trial by doing that?
    Or purchase the month, download trial, then cancel?
